Controls sites are marked with chalk on the ground or small laminated pictures tied to a thing. Control descriptions have a number with "C" (chalk) or "P" (picture) to tell you which.

Short course crosses parking areas and cul de sacs: no through traffic. Long courses cross Colinton Road, be prepared to wait a few seconds if it's busy. All courses go beside the canal: don't fall in, beware of dogs, swans, cyclists and rowers. Steps can be slippery when wet. Long course requires stepping over a low fence (only 2ft high)
